Ballet is the portal into a magical world where expressions become dance and words become movement. Pairing another classic story and the incredible company of Joburg Ballet, we’re definitely in for a treat from the 13th of October as Snow White – The Ballet Premieres at the Joburg Theatre.

This popular story by the Brothers Grimm will be running until the 22nd of October and artistic director Ian MacDonald has chosen this story of romance, comedy and drama to showcase their dancers “in both classical and character roles”.

Snow White will delight audiences this spring as Shostakovich’s “melodic and evocative music” and the set designed by Andrew Botha will transport you into the magical world of Snow White.  The Joburg Ballet company will also be debuting four new Brazilian dancers, and Revil Yon, a recent addition to the company from the Cape Town Ballet Company.
